Weekend Guide, January 11-13

THE WEEKEND GUIDE FOR LAKE COUNTRY

AND THE GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY AREA HAS ARRIVED

FILLED WITH FESTIVE THINGS TO DO!!

PLEASE THANK OUR WEEKEND GUIDE SPONSOR: 

Ice Castles Lake Geneva Lake Country Family Fun
 
Ice Castles is an awe-inspiring, must-see winter phenomenon that brings fairy tales to life. The frozen attraction is located in six cities across North America. The experience is built entirely by hand using hundreds of thousands of icicles hand-placed by professional ice artists. The castles include breathtaking LED-lit sculptures, frozen thrones, ice-carved tunnels, slides, and fountains.
 
Visit Ice Castles in Lake Geneva this winter!

The weather was all over the place earlier this week, but now it feels like January. Brr! Which is perfect, because there are two winter festivals this weekend: DelaFREEZE and Winter Fest at the Corners of Brookfield. Plus, other opportunities to enjoy the winter in our Winter Fun Guide, plus options for staying inside in the warm as well. 

Wishing you a happy weekend in or outside!
